Can Richie win Sophia’s heart?
Sophia is the daughter of a livestock trader. Richie is the son of a billionaire.
Richie wants to marry her. All she wants is to focus on her PA duties, earn money to lift her family out of poverty. To her, romance derails women from their career goals.
That’s not Sophia’s only challenge. Marko, her father, summons her to the village to get married to Cleophas, a local school teacher. Can she object without straining existing family relations?
What should Sophia choose when her father is this adamant?
Marko talked, in a voice different from the last one. This time round he did not sound quarrelsome. “Have you considered the proposal from Teacher Cleophas? He is not a bad man. With a teacher, comes a lot of reassurance that your children will get an education, and some extra coaching from home.”
He scratched the back of his neck. “But if the Teacher is no longer part of your new elevated life, I will go apologize to Peterson, then you can voluntarily join their home and business. Or, if you love the life of flying in those planes, Ndugu’s son is in town from the USA. I am told he came to look for a good girl, like you, to marry.”
What does Sophia choose? Can she live with the reality and consequences of her choices?
The chase begins.
There are many elements that are necessary to bring a story to life, Eileen weaves this tapestry quite well. The plot and sub-plots were interesting, scene setting was quite good, and the dialog was downright funny at times! I laughed out loud more than once! I savored the local flavor of Africa Eileen wove into the story, she shared what a lot of the Kiswahili language terms meant. Kiswahili is spoken by nearly 100 million people in Africa. Learning about food and cultural customs enhances a story for me a great deal. The action was played out quite well also, without being too exhaustive and bogging the story down.
All things considered, this story gave me several hours of reading pleasure. I award 5 stars to The Choices She Must Make!
I am happy to share that volume two of the series is available at this time: “Outside the Family Box”.
